Rarest gold

Rebeca I want to thank you 

For being kind, for being there 

For being brave,for being honest 

For showing me you really care

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For never once leaving my side 

For always answering my questions

For helping me ride out the tide

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For never giving up on me 

For listening to my dramas 

For being the one to make me see

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For always being my best friend 

For putting up with all my baggage 

For seeing things out til the end 

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For never failing to forgive

For having a heart of rarest gold

For proving what life has to give 

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For support even when I'm wrong 

For helping me defeat my battles 

For being my friend for so long 

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For helping keep my trust intact

For making September liveable

For always giving me the facts 

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For I know we are both strange

But please just keep on being you 

Rebecca, don't you ever change

I like how this poem gives clear meaning to what the poet is being thankful for but also has certain references (like to September) that are private things to the poet and the poem's subject. It gives the reader the sense of overhearing a confidence.
